My wife and I visited Boulders Beach as part of a tour of southern Africa. I've seen penguins in the Galapagos Islands, Ushuaia, Argentina, South Georgia Island and in their major colonies in the Antarctica. At Boulders Beach, we only had time to visit the "tourist attraction" beach complete with walkways and fences to keep the humans in check. While it is not the same as visiting them in the Antarctica, particularly with the plastic shelters, fences and walkways, it is a good alternative that allows visitors to see the penguins sleeping, walking around, swimming and going about their daily lives. For the most part, they seemingly paid no attention to the humans who were watching them. The interpretative center offers excellent information about the penguins and some souvenirs. Entrance Fee is R35 (approx US$5).
